Google Music

Google has partnered with several major providers of online music to launch a music search engine. Now when you type in the name of a song, artist or title, you can access audio or video previews of your music search query. The previews will be available via links to MySpace, Pandora, iLike, Lala and Rhapsody.

Once you click on the link through Google, you can preview the music as well as review buying options for full downloads. Further options will include the ability to find tour information for the artist in question and buy tickets. The new search tool will also allow you to enter lyrics in order to look up previews of songs. Google will be rolling out the service over the next couple of days.

These agreements are in addition to partnerships that Google already has with EMI, Sony, Universal and Warner Bros. As Google furthers these music partnerships, it could mean that they are poised to start their own music service.
